INTRODUCTORY. 



It is with pleasure that the publishers present this, the fourth volume of the West 
Virginia State Gazetteer and Business Directory, to the public, feeling that in 
this edition they have given the most thorough and exhaustive Gazetteer of the State 
that could be furnished,(a task,.the least considerate will acknowledge,,;Tequiring a large 
exercise of care, energy and perseverance, aDd no small outlay of cash. As in the past, 
so this year the aim constantly held in view has been to make the Gazetteer accurate and 
concise, by securing the insertion of every item of information the public have a right to 
expect, and by using constant watchfulness during the printing and compilation, as 
well as to produce a handsome, durable and legible volume.) The miscellaneous portion 
— pages 29 to 44 — has been corrected to date from late official sources and will be found 
especially valuable for reference, embracing as it does a descriptive sketch of West 
Virginia, its resources and development, lists of State Officers, State Government, the 
State Judiciary, State Institutions and Officers, State Boards, Representatives in Con- 
gress, County Seats and Officers, a Bankers' Directory, etc., etc. This is followed by a 
list of all the postoffices in the State, with a description of the geographical position of 
each, the population of each place, leading business interests, nearest accessible ship- 
ping point when off a railroad, nearest banking point and other useful facts regarding it. 
Succeeding this is an alphabetically arranged list of all persons engaged in business 
there, and the whole is supplemented by a voluminous Classified Business Directory 
comprising lists of all trades, professions and pursuits, with name and postoffice address, 
compiled and arranged under the heading to which each belongs. The rapid extension 
of business, mining and manufacturing enterprises, and the general progress everywhere 
exhibited, has rendered a very large individual canvass necessary ; the sketches have 
been carefully re-written and much additional information added, making a consequent 
larger increase in the labor aud cost of compilation and a corresponding growth in the 
value of the work, both as a medium for advertising and for reference. 

The publishers gratefully acknowledge the patronage and support extended them 
by the business men of the State, and the generous assistance and intelligent information 
given by those who kindly assisted in collecting the information required in the pre- 
paration of this volume; and in conclusion would say that the fifth volume will be 
issued in due time, and that nothing shall be wanting on their part to maintain the high 
standard already attained.

WEST VIRGINIA'S 

RESOURCES AND DEVELOPMEIT 



By Governor A. B. Fleming. 



Until within the past few years little was known by the outside world of the mar- 
velous natural resources of West Virginia. The great avenues of commerce and travel 
lay along the northern and southern borders of the triangular-shaped State, and popula- 
tion and trade swept heedlessly by, unaware of the capabilities of her soil, the extent 
and value of her forests^or the inexhaustible wealth of her vast mineral deposits. 

While this is not now true to the extent it was a score of years ago, while capital 
and industry have recently penetrated even to the heart of the State and are now devel- 
oping her hidden riches with tremendous energy, the vast possibilities of the State are 
as yet scarcely realized, her richest mineral regions are practically unexplored, her great 
stores of iron and coal are comparatively untouched, and of the 16,640,000 acres of land 
in the State, probably 8,000,000 acres are still in the original forest. This is a State 
whose eastern border is only 81 miles by rail from Baltimore, 179 miles from Philadel- 
phia, 286 from New York ; whose western border is 7 hours distant from Cincinnati, 14 
hours from Chicago, and whose products can be put into Cincinnati in 20 hours by 
river, Pittsburg in 30 hours, New Orleans in 5 days. 

It would, in truth, be impossible to exaggerate the unequaled opportunities which 
West Virginia presents, therefore, to capital and every kind of manufacturing and com- 
mercial enterprise. I would emphasize this fact. No other State in the Union, in my 
judgment, possesses to-day such cheap and abundant raw materials or offers such con- 
spicuous opportunities for safe and profitable investment of capital. 

I cannot, in the limited time at my disposal for the task, give more than a general 
view of the present development and material advancement of the State, and touch upon 
some of her chief sources of wealth, present and prospective. 

Below I give in tabulated form such data as I have at hand bearing directly upon 
the growth of the State in the past decade, and which clearly evidence the remarkable 
progress made. The figures relating to population and wealth are taken from United 
States census reports; those relating to tax values and railroad mileage are from State 
reports. Not having before me the census reports of 1880 touching farm animals and 
farm products, the statistics under that head show a comparison between 1870 and 1888, 
the first as reported in the ninth census, the latter as given by the Secretary of Agricul- 
ture in his report for 1889.

RAILROADS. 

It is of interest to note the increase in railroad mileage within the last ten years, as 
shown above, and to briefly consider the tremendous momentum which this must give 
to the State's' progress during the next decade. The figures mean more than a mere 
doubling of West Virginia's transportation facilities. The mileage of 1880 was made up 
almost wholly of the Baltimore & Ohio and the Chesapeake & Ohio railroads — the first 
an east and west line running along the extreme northern border of the State; the latter 
an east and west line traversing the southern border. The policy of both roads was to 
handle through business at the expense of local traffic, a policy which each has since 
wisely abandoned under new management. 

The newly built railroads are chiefly cross lines penetrating the interior of the State, 
and constructed primarily to reach and throw open to capital those sections of the State 
particularly rich in coal and iron deposits and varied agricultural capabilities. The 
traffic developed by these roads within a year or two is often surprising. The coal and 
coke shipments, for instance, over the West Virginia Central railroad since the begin- 
ning of the present year alone aggregated in excess of 1,100,000 tons ; the Monongahela 
River railroad (a part of the Camden system), which was put in operation only last 
spring, in its movement of coal and coke from two collieries near Fairmont, averages 
100 cars daily, besides having a general freight and passenger traffic far exceeding the 
expectations of its projectors. , 

The development of our railroad interests is still going on with increased activity 
and in the same general direction. Before the close of another twelvemonth the Nor- 
folk & Western will have pushed its New River division through a virgin territory to 
the Ohio river, practically placing the famous Elkhorn coal region 500 miles nearer the 
markets of Chicago and the northwest. Senator Camden is rapidly extending from 
Fairmont, the lines of his railroad system through a rich belt of country toward the 
south and will soon tap the Chesapeake & Ohio railroad. Senator Davis and his asso- 
ciates'are extending the West Virginia Central as rapidly as possible south toward the 
iron fields of the State, and north through the great coal beds of the Monongahela river 
to a connection with the Pennsylvania Railroad system at the State line. The impetus 
which these lines building and the new roads constructed will give to the growth and 
material advancement of the State is incomputable. 

COAL AND COKE PRODUCTION. 

Perhaps the industry that will be most advanced is that of coal and coke production. 
Rapid as has been the expansion of this industry in West Virginia, it is manifestly but 
in its incipiency. The great Appalachian coal measures are known to embrace the entire 
State, with the exception of the lower Potomac counties. One-thirteenth of the aggre- 
gate coal area of the country is contained within the borders of West Virginia, and 
faking into account the greater thickness of her workable seams, the State easily outranks 
all others in the extent and value of her coal beds. Her coal area is computed at 16,000 
square miles. A great portion of it is easily and cheaply mined, all of it is of the high- 
est grade of excellence, much of it lies in close proximity to vast deposits of iron ore 
and limestone, and is admirably located in point of accessibility to the best markets. 

In 1880 the State produced 1,568,000 short tons of coal, ranking seventh among the 
coal-producing States of the Union— Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, Maryland, Missouri 
and Iowa having each in the order named a larger production. In 1889 she produced 
4 726,047 long tons of coal and 665,193 tons of coke, advancing to fourth rank in coal 
production and second in production of coke. From the official report for 1890 of Mine 



AND BUSINESS DIRECTOEY. 31 

Inspector Spruce, of the second district, just received, I may safely estimate the State's 
output of coal in 1890 at 5,359,000 long tons, and the coke production at 1,000,000 tons. 
If the report from the first district of the State shall verify this estimate, the increase in 
West Virginia's coal production during the current year will be over 18 per cent., and 
in coke production over 68 per cent. Comparing the output of 1880 with that of 1890 
shows an increase of 285 per cent., or an average annual increase of 28| per cent. 

While this ratio of increase exceeds that of any other coal-producing State, a com- 
bination of peculiar advantages and high merit in favor of West Virginia coals must 
bring about a much more rapid increase in the production during the next five years. 
There is, indeed, at this time unprecedented activity in the coal mining industry. Within 
the year the Monongah Coal & Coke Co., which owns large bodies of coal between Fair- 
mont and Clarksburgh, has opened mines in the vicinity of Fairmont at two points, 
with an output daily capacity approximating 2,000 tons, and is constructing a plant of 
500 coke ovens. Several other large operators — Pennsylvanians who recognize a superior 
quality of coal when they see it — purchased a large boundary of coal in the same field 
a few months ago. and will open mines on an extensive scale. The Davis syndicate has 
also recently purchased and will operate two extensive tracts of coal there. The vein 
operated is the Pittsburgh seam, 9 feet thick, the one persistent and important seam of 
our coal series. The coal is unequaled as a gas coal, and the coke product sells readily 
in the markets in competition with the famous Connellsville coke. The U. S. Geolog- 
ical Report contains the following comparative analyses of these two cokes, pages 379- 
428 : 

Fixed carbon. Ash. Sulphur. Authority. 

Connellsville— Bradford mines 80.576 9.113 0.821 A. S. McCreath. 

Fairmont— Montana mines 91.85 6.820 0.480 D. T. Day. 

In the Kanawha and New River district, with a large area of undeveloped coal field, 
the demand for coal continues to exceed the output, notwithstanding the rapid increase 
in the production; hence we may look for greater percentages of increase every year. 
By reason of cheap river transportation the markets of the great Ohio and Mississippi 
valleys are open beyond any controlling competition to the Kanawha coal trade, while 
over the Chesapeake & Ohio railroad it has access to the tidewater wharfs at Newport 
News, distant only, say 365 to 398 miles. The Kanawha and New River coals exceed 
the Pittsburgh, Youghiogheny and Hocking Valley coals in per cent, of fixed carbon, 
have a less per cent, of ash and sulphur, and are quite as rich in volatile matter. They 
are second to none in the world as steam raisers. New River coke gives off an intense 
heat, leaving only a nominal quantity of ash, and its excellence is freely admitted and 
commands for it the best prices in the market. 

But perhaps the most notable development in this State is taking place in the Poca- 
hontas and Elkhorn district. This field, extending from Webster and Nicholas counties 
in this State to Tazewell and Russell counties in Virginia, is opened up by the extension 
of the Norfolk & Western railroad. It was only in 1883 that shipments began, but last 
year the output had already reached 1,592,435 tons of coal and 253,170 tons of coke. 
This growth is phenomenal. That it will continue, if not indeed increase, is beyond 
doubt. The coal is of superior quality and thickness. The Norfolk & Western, as 
stated above, will complete its road to the Ohio river during the next year, giving to 
this district, rich in timber as well as coal, a direct western outlet that will stimulate its 
operations to a wonderful degree. 

As illustrative of the remarkable coal deposits found in this State, I may refer to a 
conspicuous development on Pond Fork of Little Coal river, in Boone county. There 
may be seen no less than ten seams of coal, ranging from 2 feet 7 inches to 12 feet in 
thickness, and aggregating 68 feet 11 inches of coal from top to bottom. One vein is 
pure cannel coal 42 inches thick, overlaid with 34 inches of splint. 

By way of a hint to foreign investors, I may mention that undeveloped areas of 
coal of the best quality and of good workable seams are still buyable in interior coun- 
ties at from $10 to $20 an acre, surface and all, and timbered at that ! Thousands of 
acres of coal, too, lying immediately on the line of the Baltimore & Ohio, in character, 
quality and thickness the same as the Connellsville coal, can be purchased at from $25 
to $40 per acre. 

THE IRON ORES OF THE STATE. 

There has been comparatively no development of the iron ores of West Virginia. 
A few small blast furnaces have worked the native ores which belong to and are found 
in the coal measures in the northern part of the State, but lack of cheap transportation 
facilities at the time caused the abandonment of these enterprises, and but little atten- 



32 WEST VIRGINIA STATE GAZETTEER 

tion has since been paid to our iron ore deposits. The furnace at Irondale, in Preston 
county, is, I believe, the only one remaining in operation. It has for many years suc- 
cessfully worked a seam of ore 16 to 20 inches thick, and the plant has lately been 
improved and its capacity increased. The rapid development of our coals, however, 
and the extension of our railroads into the interior of the State, will certainly excite a. 
more active inquiry into the extent and value of our iron ores. The present knowledge- 
concerning them may be presented by a brief mention of the varieties of ore found, 
grouping them under the heads of carbonates and oxides. 

Carbonates, more or less oxidized by exposure, extend across the entire State from 
and including Preston county to Big Sandy river, the Kentucky State line. They are 
found in many forms — kidney, nodular, beds of different colors, from greenish gray to 
black of the black band ; of varying thickness, from 6 inches to six feet, and yielding 
from 30 to 40 per cent, of iron of high grade, especially when made with charcoal or 
high grade coke. These carbonates, particularly the limestone ore, can be mixed to 
great advantage with the oxides. Elk river and sixty miles of the Great Kanawha may 
be said to divide the State into two nearly equal parts, and among iron men it is well 
known that the valley of Elk from head to mouth, a distance of 190 miles as the river 
runs, has almost throughout its whole length carbonates in workable beds of high qual- 
ity, including some valuable beds of black band ore. No iron in the market, I may add, 
was in better demand or commanded a higher price than the iron made a few years ago 
at the Savage furnace, in Braxton county. 

In considering the oxides, however, we come to what may be properly styled the 
Iron Region of West Virginia. Beginning at Harper's Ferry, and running with the 
Virginia line to Tazewell, through the West Virginia counties of Jefferson, Berkeley, 
Morgan, Hampshire, Hardy, Grant, Pendleton, Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Monroe and 
Mercer, we find the true eastern oxides — red and brown hematite ores in large and per- 
sistent veins or beds, and inclining at a good angle for mining. Through Hampshire,.. 
Hardy and Pendleton both kinds are abundant — the red ore of more than ordinary 
quality and quantity. This is generally called the Clinton ore (red fossil and red shale), 
and is identical with the greaVore bed of the Red Mountain District, Birmingham, Ala. 
There runs from Greenbank, in Pocahontas county, to Anthony's creek, in Greenbrier 
county, 10 miles northeast of White Sulphur, a mountain some 40 miles long, which we 
may collectively call the "Beaver Lick." This mountain has throughout its whole 
length fine veins of red fossil and red shale, and, intermittingly, pipe ore. These red 
ores are understood to be equal in quality and quantity to the red ores of East Tennessee. 
It is claimed also by those who ought to know that the brown hematite ore is found in 
very thick beds in this mountain. 

Of the extraordinary value of this ore field there is now most conclusive evidence, 
and it is likely at no distant day to be penetrated by both the Camden and Davis railroad 
systems, bringing the New River coking coal, only twenty miles away, into the region, 
when these ores will be most keenly sought after. The lower Helderburg limestone, 
used so much as a flux, is found in this mountain everywhere. 

The brown hematite ore extends through the eastern part of Monroe county. Some 
half dozen chemists of character and reputation have analyzed it, and while not proving 
a Bessemer ore, it is the very thing for the basic process, with the magnesian limestone 
right at hand. Two tons of this ore will make a ton of iron in everyday furnace work 
year in and year out. As to quantity, I have it at first hand from those who have been 
on the ground, that it lies in continuous beds and outcrops from 20 to 50 feet thick. In 
East River mountain, the line between Mercer and Giles counties, thick beds of this 
brown ore are found, being, in fact, but a continuation of Peter's mountain, southwest 
of New river. 

The manufacture of iron has as yet received little attention, because until quite 
recently the extent of our resources and the favorable conditions have not been generally 
understood. West Virginia is destined in the near future to take high rank as a pro- 
ducer of pig iron. Indeed, I have the best authority — the report of an English expert of 
known character and ability, who has made a report for an English syndicate who con- 
template making large investments — for stating that pig iron can be made in the north- 
eastern part of the State for $7 a ton, which is the lowest point yet reached in the cost of 
production. Even this remarkable statement does not show the full measure of advan- 
tage enjoyed by this portion of the State, because the product of the furnaces and mills 
will be so near to the great markets and to tidewater that the item of transportation will 
be insignificant. Many large enterprises have lately been organized to utilize these: 
extraordinary advantages, notably a company to build an industrial town, based on iron 
and steel production, at Shenandoah Junction. The same conditions have led to the.- 



AND BUSINESS DIBECTOBY. 33 

•organization of a company at Charles Town, and other similar enterprises are reported In 
-various stages of progress. 

THE OIL PRODUCTION. 

Rich as is West Virginia in coal, iron and timber, the past two years have demon- 
strated that she is no less rich in deposits of petroleum oil. There are now three well- 
defined producing fields along parallel lines having a general northeast and southwest 
direction, and the activity of the operators, the millions of capital already invested, the 
extent and character of the territory make the Stale the chief riVal of Pennsylvania as 
the source of the future oil supply of the country. 

The newer developments embrace the Eureka and Belmont field in Pleasants county, 
and the Mannington and Doll's Run field in Marion and Monongalia counties, respec- 
tively. The last two named are an extension of the Mt. Morris (Pa.) field. The source 
of production is the " Big Injun " sand rock, found at a depth of about 1,900 feet, The 
first important well in the Mannington pool was struck early last spring, since which 
time over 40 producing wells have been brought in, yielding a monthly production of 
over 60,000 barrels. The development is going on at the same rapid rate. The oil is a 
good grade of light premium, commanding 20 cents per barrel above quoted market 
prices. The amount of capital now invested in the industry at Mannington is estimated 
to be little short of $1,500,000. The " Big Injun " oil line is supposed to extend south 
to below the Kanawha river. Test wells have been drilled and are drilling along this 
'belt of territory with more or less favorable results. 

The Belmont and Eureka district in Pleasants county derives its oil from the Berea 
grit, an extremely rich sand, at a depth of about 1,200 feet, though a good grade of 
■'■' heavy " oil is also found in limited quantities in the shallow sands. In this field the 
development has been even more rapid than in the Mannington region, and the produc- 
tion much greater. The average cost of the wells is $3,000, and the average yield is 
unusually good, many of the wells coming in with a flow of from 500 to 1,000 barrels 
per day. The head wells in this field are now as far north as the town of St. Mary's. I 
am unable to report the production of this district. It probably exceeds several times 
•that of the Mannington field. 

A very important development is that in the horizon of the well-known Gordon 
sand Along a line extending southwest from the Little Washington and Ninevah pools 
in Pennsylvania through Wetzel and other counties in this State. Experienced oil men 
predict that this will be the great oil field of the future. The first producing well in 
this sand within the State was brought in a month or more ago near Littleton, Wetzel 
county. It is variously reported at from 300 to 600 barrels. A rapid development may 
be expected to follow, and if the prolific character of the Gordon sand rock is main- 
tained, an enormous production from the new field may safely be anticipated. 



A 



WHAT WEST VIRGINIANS ARE DOING. 



Let it not be assumed that West Virginians are awaiting in idleness the influx of 
foreign capital and enterprise to develop the immense natural resources I have attempted 
to describe, nor that the State has made no considerable progress in that direction, and 
is in many respects what might in popular phrase be styled " a back number." The 
industrial channels into which they could direct their energies are so many that they 
have found it impossible to occupy all, but they are leading in every enterprise of mag- 
nitude. They have brought to a condition of fine cultivation a great portion of the State, 
built railroads, cities and towns, established manufactures, created a splendid system of 
schools, erected creditable public buildings and have kept out of debt. The State tax 
rate has averaged but a fraction over 30 cents on the $100 valuation since the birth of 
the State, and in the past year (1890) the sum of $1,293,164.98, realized from State and 
local school levies and the invested school fund, was disbursed to the public or free 
schools. 

I have mainly confined this article to the natural advantages and resources of theState, 
and have omitted to refer to her prosperous manufacturing industries. Our steel, iron, 
nail, glass, pottery, fire-brick and tiling, salt, tanning and brewing interests are exten- 
sive and have increased with surprising rapidity in the past ten years. The city of 
Wheeling is a center of the iron trade, and the largest nail market in the world. 
Nearly all of the large and prosperous towns in the State have their electrical plants, 
street railways and daily newspapers. 

The State in every quarter is wonderfully prosperous, and to the attractions of its 
varied treasures of forest and mine its people add a cordial welcome to all who may 
come to aid in their development.

Some 
Facts 
About 



Santa fe Route : 



In point of mileage (9,000 miles and over), equipment (solid vestibulecl trains), ^ind general excel- 
lence (ballasted road bed, steel rails, etc.), we rank among the few great railway systems of the world. 

Some lines begin nowhere and end at the same place. Look at our termini : Chicago, St. Louis, 
Kansas City, Galveston, Denver, El Paso, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego. Look at our 
train service : 

. THROUGH PULLMAN PALACE YESTIBULED SLEEPERS, 

Chicago to Galveston, San Francisco and Los Angeles ; and to Denver. 

But because the miles are many, it does not follow that there is a corresponding deficiency in the 
details of management. On the contrary, everything is carefully looked after. The comfort and 
safety of passengers is never forgotten. 

OUR PERSONALLY-CONDUCTED EXCURSIONS TO PACIFIC COAST 



Are a big card for the season of 1891-'92. Every Thursday evening Pullman Tourist Cars leave Chicago 
on regular train for Northern and Southern California Points, running through via Kansas City (which 
station they leave Friday morning of each week), in charge of experienced excursion conductors. 
Second-class tickets honored. A small extra charge for double berth in Pullman. These excursions 
are patronized by the best classes of people, and are specially intended for ladies and children, the 
aged and infirm. Address

FROM DISTILLED WATER. 

No chemicals are used at any stage of the process, and conse- 
quently no impurities are introduced. Compared with natural ice, 
its PURITY places it far beyond competition. When melted it fur- 
nishes the PUREST DRINKING WATER obtainable. It is abso- 
lutely free from all slime, sediment and odor. Its lower temperature 
renders it far superior to natural ice for cooling purposes, and for 
the same reason it will last nearly one-third longer.

CHARLESTON. ' ' The history of 
West Virginia's capital is rather interest- 
ing. For a long time it remained practi- 
cally on wheels, vibrating back and forth 
between Wheeling and Charleston, until 
mapmakers began, in order to be on the 
safe side, to mark both places as capitals. 
The State was new and in an unsettled 
condition, and this restlessness on the part 
of the seat of government was something 
in keeping with the general character of a 
new order of things. It soon became evi- 
dent, though, to the people of the State, 
that this sort of thing wouldn't do, and, 
after a hard fight, Charleston was decided 
on by a popular vote as the permanent seat 
of government. In 1885, after a stay of 
ten years in Wheeling, the capital was 



tion, open throughout the year, Charleston 
enjoys facilities for river transportation 
almost unequaled. By means of the C. & 
O. Ry on one side of the Kanawha, and 
thd K. & M. on the other, which furnishes 
direct communication with Columbus and 
Toledo, Ohio, and Chicago, 111., Charles- 
ton is placed within easy access of 
the world. Seven hours is the time 
to Cincinnati, sixteen to Chicago, 
and nineteen to New York. Charles- 
ton is one of the principal cities in 
the southern part of the State ; and upon 
her is dependent almost the entire popula- 
tion of the counties south of the center of 
the State. With the rapid development 
that has been in progress in this section 
and the consequent increase in the busi- 




CAPITOL 

returned to Charleston. Periodically some 
one brings up the question of its removal, 
but it never meets with favor, and the 
entire State has long looked on the 
capital question as permanently settled. 
Charleston was settled in 1787, and until 
1800 was known as Charlestown. It is 
beautifully located in the valley of the 
Great Kanawha, 60 miles from its mouth, 
40 miles below the head of navigation 
at Kanawha Falls and 232 miles from 
Wheeling. The Elk river flows along its 
western border and empties into the Kana- 
wha, forming the corporate limits of the 
city. The valley is hemmed in on either 
side with mountains — some of the outlying 
portions of the Alleghany range — which 
follow the winding course of the river and 
give to Charleston the appearance of being 
completely surrounded by hills. Almost 
at the head of 3,000 miles of river naviga-

ness of Charleston, it is no wonder that 
she has grown and grown rapidly. The 
census of 1890 shows an increase of nearly 
100 per cent, in the population of the city 
in ten years. Charleston's limits are 
cramped, comprising not over 375 acres, 
and a considerable portion of her popula- 
tion as well as of her industrial plants are 
located beyond the city limits. This will 
account in some measure for Charleston's 
small population as shown by the last cen- 
sus, being put down at about 7,000. Im- 
mediately adjoining Charleston and sep- 
arated only by the Elk river, which is 
spanned by three free bridges, are the vil- 
lages of West Charleston and Glen Elk, 
with a population of over 2,000. These 
places are as much a part of Charleston a& 
if they were Within the corporation, and 
there is a bill now before the West Vir- 
ginia Legislature to provide for the exten-

sion of the city so as to include these 
places. On the east, separated by an im- 
aginary line only, is the town of Ruffner, 
with a population of several hundred, and 
the South Side, across the Kanawha, has 
almost as many. These suburbs, all lying

organized and now water is supplied con- 
stantly to the fire plugs on nearJy every 
corner and to private consumers, the 
water being pumped direct from the 
Elk River and at a capacity of 
3,000,000 gallons per day. With the

swell the population of Charleston proper 
to between 10,000 and 11,000, of which 
much more than half represents the growth 
of ten years. Not in numbers alone has 
the city advanced in the last ten years, but 
especially marked has been the material 
progress in that time. Every street in the 
business portion has been paved, and many 
others, giving good streets to almost every

water works came the increased 
necessity of sewers, and the city is now 
undermined with a network of sewers that 
suffice to carry off all surface water and 
waste, leaving the city clean and healthy. 
The gas street lamps have given way to an 
excellent system of electric arc lighting, 
while gas, incandescent and arc electricity, 
or any of them, may be used by private

consumers. Compressed though, the city 
is, within narrow limits, means of trans- 
portation have been found neeessary, and 
the Charleston Street Railway is the result. 
Over two miles of railway are in success- 
ful operation . One thing of which Charles- 
ton is especially proud is her free school 
system. Three large school buildings, two 
for whites and one for colored, are always 
crowded, and now with one large building 
only recently completed, at a cost of $60,- 
000, more buildings are necessary, and two 
new buildings will be required within a 
year, one for white and one for colored 



the Hotel Ruffner, constructed at a cost of 
$125,000; and the new rotary steel cell jail. 
There are many handsome blocks of busi- 
ness houses, among them being the new 
opera house, and Roy Furniture Co.'s 
building, the Gazette, Wilson, Washburne, 
Coyle & Richardson, and Shrewsbury 
blocks, and others now in course of build- 
ing. The proposed new Masonic Temple 
will occupy a prominent corner site and 
be a monument of architectural beauty. 
The banking interests of Charleston show 
a healthy condition of business. The Kan- 
awha Valley Bank has a capital and reserve

jpupils. Iu the erection of buildings for 
public worship, Charleston has equaled 
many a city twice her size. The stone ed- 
ifices of the First and Kanawha Presbyter- 
ian and St. John's Episcopal churches are 
handsome enough for any city and are 
models of beauty, comfort and elegance 
worthy of imitation. Aside from these 
are three Methodist (one colored), two Bap- 
tist (one colored), Catholic and Christian 
churches. Among other public buildings 
may be mentioned the Capitol, a magnifi- 
cent structure of stone and brick, the Unit- 
ed States Court House and Postoffice, a 
handsome pressed brick building with 
brown stone trimmings; the Mercer School, 



of $450,000, the Charleston National Bank 
$150,000, and the Citizens' National Bank 
$130,000. Charleston's industrial estab- 
lishments, while not one of them is large 
enough to make the city to any extent 
dependent upon it, when taken together 
form a very important factor in the city's 
prosperity. In these various establish- 
ments from 1,000 to 1,500 persons are 
regularly employed, and every concern is 
iu a prosperous condition. All run regu- 
larly, have had no strikes or shut-downs, and 
all are growing. Charleston is essentially 
a commercial city. Not only are Kanawha 
and the adjoining counties dependent on 
her for their supplies of all kinds, but

out by Charles Washington, brother of 
General Washington, in 1786. On account 
of its easy accessibility and the beautiful 
and fertile section in which it is located, it 
has been termed the " Key of the Shenan- 
doah," and the " Garden Spot of the Vir- 
ginia Valley. " Situated 380 feet above the 
level of the sea, it is noted for the health- 
fulness of its location, and commands ex- 
cellent views of the North Mountains on 
the west, and the Blue Ridge and Harper's 
Ferry Gap on the east. The social, relig- 
ious and educational advantages are of the 
best. Among the educational institutions 
may be mentioned the John Stevenson Fe- 
male Seminary, the Charles Town Male Aca- 
demy, and an excellent system of public 
schools. Churches of the following denom- 
inations are well supported, and attest the 
devout spirit of its citizens: Episcopal, Pres- 
byterian, Baptist, Methodist and Catholic. 
The town is well supplied with water and 
gas, has an abundance of raw material 
for manufacturing purposes, is within 
easy reach of the coal and coke regions, 
is surrounded with fine forests of white 
oak, hickory, walnut, and other hard 
woods, boasts of inexhaustible quantities 
of limestone, is situated in the heart of an 
excellent fruit-producing region, and is des- 
tined to be a great distributing center for 
the numerous factories and mills which 
have already located and will locate at this 
point. There are already in successful op- 
eration two banks, five building associa- 
tions, three newspapers, \three planing 
mills, sash and blind factories, foundry 
and machine shops, a fertilizer factory, two 
grain elevators, one flour mill, one bark 
mill, a tannery, a creamery, two carriage 
factories, the Vulcan Road Machine Fac- 
tory with a capital of $125,000, a capacity 
of 500 machines a year and which produces 
undoubtedly the best road-making machin- 
ery manufactured; the Charles Town Glove 
Works, with a capital of $50,000, the 
Shenandoah Brass and Iron Works, em- 
ploying 50 workmen ; a harness and fly 
net factory, with a capital of $40,000, em- 
ploying 60 workmen, in addition to 
which there are numerous other enter- 
prises contemplated. Two good hotels, 
the Elliott House and the Carter House, 
contribute to the comfort of the traveling 
public. A third hotel of extensive pro- 
portions is nearing completion. The 
town's contiguity to raw materials and also 
to the eastern markets, as shown by the 
following distances, render her a formida- 
ble competitor : distance from Charles 



Town to Washington, D. C, 2 hours; to 
Baltimore, 3 hours; to Philadelphia, 6 
hours; to New York, 8 hours; to Pitts-

D^AVIS. Is in Tucker county, on the 
Davis~bTof the W.Va.C.R.R.,84 miles from 
Cumberland, Md., 57 from Piedmont and 
25 from St. George, the county seat. 
Situated 3,100 feet above the level of the 
sea, it bids fair, at an early date, to 
become a noted health and summer resort. 
There is perhaps no town in West Vir- 
ginia that has enjoyed so rapid and pros- 
perous a growth as has Davis. Surround- 
ed by inexhaustible quantities of coal and 
timber, and enjoying the best of ship- 
ping facilities, it will, beyond a 
doubt, grow in a few years to be 
a thriving city. The industries at 
present comprise 2 large lumber mills, one 
of which cuts 75,000 feet of lumber per 
day; numerous general stores, one good 
hotel and one tannery, the latter em- 
ploying over 200 workmen and tanning 
over one million hides annually. No bet- 
ter location for furniture and wood work- 
ing factories could be selected. Real estate 
has never commanded fancy prices, but 
sells at figures that enable the working 
classes to own their own homes. The 
dwelling houses of the town are substan- 
tially built, and many of the business 
blocks are excellent structures. The town 
has a town hall, 2 churches of the Metho- 
dist and Presbyterian denominations, and 
the following orders: I. O. O. F., K. of 
P., P. O. S. of A., and K. of M. C. c.One 
newspaper is published, the Davis Times, a 
live, enterprising weekly, edited by John 
T. Reger;>, There are four passenger trains 
daily between Davis and Thomas, a dis- 
tance of 6^ miles. Tel., W. Va. Central.

Central R R Co. and the Elk Garden Big 
Vein Mining Co. It was in the Elk Gar- 
den region that the famous 14 foot or 
"Big Vein" was first developed, and it is 
estimated by competent geologists that the 
field contains over a hundred million tons 
of workable coal. The town contains one 



newspaper, the Elk Garden News, three 
churches — Catholic, M. E. South and Pres- 
byterian — a public school, planing mill, 
feed mill, several general stores, and good 
hotels. Coal and lumber are shipped.

ty on the W. Va. C. & P. K. R., 113 miles 
from Cumberland and 6£ from Beverly. 
The town was begun in April, 1889, and 
is, therefore, less than three years old. Its 
present population, which is steadily in- 
creasing, is about l,000.ifThe natural loca- 
tion of the town is the most beautiful that 
can be imagined, situated on a plain and 
surrounded on all sides by foot hills that 
rise by regular gradations in every direc- 
tion, producing a picturesque effect"^ The 
town has three hotels; one, a fine large 
three-story building, operated by the 
Elkins Hotel Company, has all the modern 
improvements, including furnace heat, 
water, gas, electric bells, baths, and all 
that could be desired at a first class sum- 
mer resort. The railway company's round 
house and machine shops are located here, 
and a large corrugated iron freight depot 
has just been completed. A bank build- 
ing of blue granite, and perhaps the finest 
in the State, is nearing completion. Situ- 
ated on one of the most prominent hills 
and commanding an excellent view of the 
town and surrounding country, is the pala- 
tial residence of Hon. S.B.Elkins, containing 
82 rooms and costing a fabulous sum of 
money, and splendid residences are in 
course of erection on the adjoining hills. 
The railroad is being extended in two 
directions. The Beverly extension, 7 miles 
in length, will be open shortly for traffic, 
and will eventually be extended to the Vir- 
ginia iron fields, thus tapping the richest 
iron region in the east. The other will 
run northwest to Belington, Barbour 
county, connecting with the Grafton & 
Greenbrier road, and thus gaining an 
outlet^to Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and the 
west. Elkins will thus become a railroad 
center and will ere long be decidedly 
the most accessible point in the State. 
The entire northern and central portions 
of West Virginia, which have hitherto been 
controlled by the B. & O. R. R., and which 
have in consequence been made tributary to 
Baltimore instead of Pittsburgh, via the 
natural outlet, will now develop more 
rapidly than ever before. Markets will be 
nearer and freights will be lower. Elkins 



is blessed with superior advantages, its 
inexhaustible supply of coal, its virgin 
forests that yet stand untouched, excellent 
transportation facilities and the cheap liv- 
ing that will be incident thereto, will all 
combine to make it a mining and manu- 
facturing city that will defy rivalry and 
competition. ^The trout-filled streams and 
forests alive with wild turkey, bear and 
deer, will attract sportsmen, jts picturesque 
scenery will attract the artist, while the 
pure water and crisp mountain air will in- 
duce the health-seeker to visit this coming 
city of the Alleghenies. Exp., Adams.

loan associations, both local and national. 
The fire department is well equipped, and 
plans are on foot for the erection of very 
fine county buildings. There are several 
beautiful church edifices and public 
schools, the Marshall College (State Nor- 
mal School), and a high school building 
which for location and construction any 
city might well feel proud of; several good 
hotels, The Florentine and the St. Nicholas 
being among the best in the Slate; 3 banks, 
the oldest being the Bank of Huntington. 
The First National has recently moved 
into their elegant new stone front 
building, a special feature being the 
safety deposit vaults in connection 
with the same. The streets of 
the city are now being paved 
with brick, and new stone curbing put 
down. A belt line system of street cars 
traverse the city, and the electric railway 
plant is one of the best in use. The city, 
and many of the stores and residences, are 
illuminated with electric light. Telephone 
service throughout the city and connecting 
with Quyandotte, Central City, Kecova 
and Ceredo. The water works plant is of 
the best. If "printers' ink" makes a city, 
then certainly Huntington is highly favor- 
ed, for there are no less than 12 daily and 
weekly papers published, and all are doing 
well. Bonded debt, $123,000. Exp., Ad-

KEYSER. The county spat of Mineral 
county, is at the junction of New creek and 
the north branch of the Potomac, the lat- 
ter stream affording a fine water power. It 
is a division station of the B. & O. R. R. ,and 
a station of the Piedmont & Cumberland 
R. R. It is 23 miles west of Cumberland, 
215 west of Baltimore, 183 east of Parkers- 
burgh, and 180 southeast of Wheeling. It 
is surrounded by beautiful scenery and has 
a most equable and healthful climate. In 
the immediate vicinity are large quarries 
of good limestone which are being worked 
to some extent, and extensive beds of iron 
ore. They are said to be of good quality. 
Within a few miles are a number of large 
mines of excellent steam and coking coal, ac- 
cessible by both railroads. The extensive 
coke works on the W.Va., C. & P. are easi- 
ly accessible by that railroad, of which the 
Piedmont & Cumberland is a part. Keyser 
has a large planing mill and manufactory of 
patent machine-made houses, run by the 
W. Va. Building Company, which also 
does a general business in lumber, sash, 
doors, blinds and builders' materials; a 
furniture factory, which is producing 
large quantities of oak, poplar and maple 
furniture, a knitting mill, which turns out 
some of the best hosiery and underwear 
for both ladies and gentlemen, using both

cotton and woolen yarns, and one of the 
finest flouring mills in all this section. 
Another flouring mill, the Rosedale, though 
on the Maryland side, really belongs to the 
industries of Keyser. There is reason to 
believe that other productive industries 
will locate here in the near future. No 
belter location for manufactures of wood 
and wool can be found, and the outlook 
for blast furnaces is excellent. The court 
house and jail are substantial brick build- 
ings, and the high school building is un- 
excelled except in one or two of the cities 
of the State. The schools are graded, and 
have been brought up to a high state of 
efficiency. For three years past a very 
flourishing summer normal school has been 
conducted here. Two weekly newspa- 
pers, the .Mountain Echo (Rep.), and the 
Keyser Tribune (Dem.), are published. 
Two express companies, the U. S. and the 
Adams, run delivery wagons and have 
offices, and daily stages run to Moorefield 
Burlington, Maysville and Petersburgh. 
There are 2 telegraph offices and 2 tele 
phone offices, one of the latter being con- 
nected with Petersburgh, Grant county, 
and intermediate stations, and the other 
with Romney. The town has a large 
country trade, which might be consider- 
ably enlarged. It invites manufacturers 
to investigate its advantages, especially for 
manufactories of furniture, agricultural 
implements, and all other manufactures of 
wood, and for woolen mills. Population, 
3,000.

MANNINGTON. An incorporated 
town of 1,200 inhabitants, located on the 
B. & O. R. R., in Marion county, 17 miles 
northeast of Fairmont, the judicial seat 
and nearest bank location. It is the center 
of the now famous Marion county oil 
field, recently developed and the present 
scene of the greatest activity in the West 
Virginia oil region. This field has been 
developed within the past fifteen months 
and during that time a steady stream of 
oil operators has been pouring into the 
region and an immense quantity of land 
has been taken up and developed. There 
are a large number of producing wells, 
those belonging to one firm alone produc- 
ing 2,000 barrels per day, and the output 
since the developments begun has been 
very great. While the oil discovery and 
its attendant blessings, in the shape of a 
great influx of mechanics, laborers, etc., 
has caused Mannington to take on a 
new life, this industry is not the only 
resource, the town being also a shipping 
point for lumber and other products of the 
surrounding country and numbering 
among its manufacturing industries one of 
the largest tanneries in the State, a planing 
mill, 2 flouring mills, marble works and 
others of minor importance. Exp. , Adams.

MARTINSBURGH. A progressive 
and rapidly increasing city, the judicial 
seat of Berkeley county, is located on the 
B. & O. and C.V. roads, both affording an 
outlet to the markets of the north, south, 
east and west. Washington can be reached 
in 1-J- hours,Baltimore in 2 hours and Phil- 
adelphia and New York in 5 and 7 hours 
respectively. The city is one of the most 
beautiful in the State, with its wide streets 
and avenues built on either side with splen- 
did blocks of business houses and resi- 
dences. The city is supplied with water 
by the Holly system. The streets and 
houses are lighted by gas and electricity. 
No place in the State enjoys a better sys- 
tem of public and private schools and all 
the principal religious denominations have 
good churches which are well supported. 
The press is represented by the Daily 
World (Ind.), and the Statesman (Dem.), 
the Independent (Ind.), the Herald (Rep .), 
and the Pioneer Press (Col'd Rep.), pub- 
lished weekly. The erection of a $150,000 
postoffice and court house has just 
been commenced. This is an import 
ant manufacturing point, having within 
its boundaries the B. & O. railroad 



shops, the largest distillery in West 
Virginia, with a mash capacity of 
750 bushels per day; fertilizer works, 
foundry, boiler works, 3 large flour mills, 
several grain elevators, 3 lumber yards, 
sash and blind factories, brick works, 4- 
cigar factories, saw mills, cooperage estab- 
lishments, carriage and wagon works, 
spoke factory, tobacco factory, etc. Dur- 
ing the past year there have been added the 
Middlesex Knitting Co., giving employ- 
ment to over 200 hands; the Standard Bi- 
cycle Works, a large woolen mill employ- 
ing 75 hands, a furniture factory, besides 
several other important industries which 
have been located, and only await the 
necessary buildings. The principal streets 
are traversed by an electric street railway. 
The city is surrounded by an agricultural 
region the fertility of whose soil is unsur- 
passed, producing grain and fruits of every 
description in abundance; and this, with 
the wealth of timber, coal, iron, limestone, 
clays, its healthful climate and excellent 
transportation facilities, make it one of 
the most inviting localities in the State. 
The most liberal inducemens are held out 
to the capitalist and manufacturer. Popu-

MOBGANTOWN. About twenty 
miles below Fairmont, in Monongalia 
county, of which it is the judicial seat, on 
the Fairmont, Morgontown & Pittsburgh 
road, is the seat of the State University, 
and is one of the most thriving towns in 
West Virginia, being favorably situated 
for a manufacturing point. It is the pres- 
ent head of navigation on the Monongahela 
river, which is slacked to this point from 
Pittsburgh. Railroad connections will 
soon be made with Uniontown, Pa., giving 
the Baltimore & Ohio a through line from 
Fairmont to Pittsburgh. The road to 
Morgantown is on the east bank of the 
river and penetrates one of the rich- 
est coal fields in the country. Five 
big veins of bituminous coal, with a num- 
ber of smaller ones, present their outcrop 
along the valley. They vary in thickness 
from five to eleven feet, and the coal is 
excellent for cokeing purposes. Natural 
gas is found in abundance, and this fuel is 
used in Morgantown, giving the place a 
great advantage as a manufacturing point. 
It already has water works, and is grow- 
ing rapidly. The West Virginia & Penn- 
sylvania road has been surveyed to this 
place, and will be built in the near future. 
A branch road is also to be built to the 
coke fields of Preston county and to some 
point on the main line of the Baltimore & 
Ohio road east of Grafton. Limestone, 
potters' and fire-clay are abundant 
throughout Monongalia county, which is 



also a rich agricultural region. It has 2 

banks, flour mills, furniture factories, 

brick and tile works and 2 weekly news-

MOUNDS VILLE. This city, the 
-county seat of Marshall county, is situated 
in one of the most healthful and pictur- 
esque sections of the State. Located on 
the Ohio river, the B. & O. R. R. and the 
O. R. R. R.,and 11 miles south of Wheeling. 
It is easily accessible by rail and water, 
and enjoys shipping facilities of which 
any metropolis might be proud. Aside 
from its importance as the judicial seat of 
Marshall county, the location of the State 
Penitentiary, and the center of a rich agri- 
cultural district, it already enjoys the dis- 
tinction of being the chief manufacturing 
•eity outside of Wheeling in Northwest Vir- 
ginia. The sterling worth of its products 
is attested by their enormous demand from 
all parts of the United States. Among its 
numerous industries may be mentioned 2 
planing mills, a tannery, grain cradle 
works, a bent wood factory, 3 flour and 
feed mills, wagon works, 2 brick yards, a 
fly-net, bridle and whip factory, a foundry 
and machine shop, coal shafts, a nursery, 
an electric light plant, two building and 
loan associations, and numerous other en- 
terprises. A mining and manufacturing 
•company has recently been organized, 
which has secured large tracts of land, and 
which offers rare inducements to manu- 
facturers, capitalists and business men. 
These desirable agricultural and mineral 
lands are laid off in city lots and manu- 
facturing sites, and capital, wide awake 
to every paying enterprise, has not been 
slow to invest. Negotiations have just 
been completed with the Fostoria Glass 
Company of Ohio, one of the largest of its 
kind in the country, employing 350 work- 
men, to locate here. The Moundsville 
Mill Supply Company has also just been 
established, as has also the Mound City 
Brick and Tile Company, with a 
•capacity of 25,000 bricks per day. 
Moundsville's 7 churches attest the de- 
vout spirit of the citizens. It has an 
excellent graded school, a public 
hall, a flourishing bank and numerous ho- 
tels. The press is represented by the 
Herald, a live weekly. Neither is Mounds- 



ville devoid of interest to the antiquarian, 
for the Mammoth Mound, known the world 
over as the largest artificial mound in 'ex- 
istence, is located here. The mound is 
1,300 feet in circumference at the base, 79 
feet high, and in cubic contents is equal to 
the third pyramid of Egypt. An excava- 
tion in 1838 revealed in the vaults and sepul- 
chres, with which the mound abounds, 
skeletons, beads, sea shells, numerous cop- 
per ornaments, and a stone on which is 
inscribed hieroglyphics which have never 
been deciphered. Moundsville has a fine 
court house, paved streets, is lighted by 
electricity, and can compete with the world 
in cheap fuel, cheap building material, 
cheap transportation and cheap living. 
Moundsville is the location of the Ohio 
Valley Prohibition Assembly and Camp 
Grounds, having a hall whose seating 
capacity is 6,000. It also has one of the 
most beautiful parks in the State, 36 acres 
in extent, with 160 cosy, comfortable cot- 
tages for summer visitors. The cheapness 
of fuel, the abundance of water, the excel- 
lent shipping facilities, together with the 
low rate of freight, all combine to give 
Moundsville advantages enjoyed by but 
few cities. Population, 3,000. Exp., U.S. 
and Adams. Thomas G. Hammond, post-

NEW MARTINSVILLE. The ju- 
dicial seat of Wetzel county, is a thriving, 
incorporated town of 2,000 inhabitants, 
located on the Ohio river and the O. R. 
R. R., 38 miles south of Wheeling. Situ- 
ated in the broad and fertile valley of the 
Ohio, it is surrounded by an agricultural 
region, the richness of whose soil is unsur- 
passed. Bounteous crops are produced 
from year to year without the aid of fer- 
tilizers. Fruit of almost every kind, that 
will vie in size, flavor, color and texture 
with that of any climate, is produced in 
abundance. The hilly country back from 
the river, which has been brought to a 
high state of cultivation by the thrifty 
German population, produces large crops 
of the cereals, and is admirably adapted 
to grazing purposes. This town has never 
experienced a boom, and consequently 
real estate has never commanded fancy 
prices. Hill farms will average in price 
from $15 to $30 per acre, while bottom 
lands command prices ranging from $60 
to $150. The business houses of the 
town are well built, substantial structures, 
while the residences are pretty, cozy and 
comfortable. Five churches of the Meth- 
odist, Episcopal, Catholic and Baptist de- 
nominations are sustained. The press is 
represented by the Wetzel Democrat and 
the Wetzel Republican, live and enterpris- 
ing weeklies. The town has a public hall, 
an excellent public school and a flourish- 
ing bank. The business interests com- 
prise 2 planing mills, a stave factory, 
a bucket handle factory, a tannery, 2 
flouring mills, a brick yard, nursery and 
other enterprises. The dairy interests are

offered to manufacturers and investing 
capital generally, are of the most generous 
nature, and all enterprises desirous of

PARKERSBURGH. The second 
city in the State in population, commerce 
and manufacture, and the county seat of 
Wood county, is located at the confluence 
of the Ohio and Little Kanawha rivers, 100 
miles below Wheeling. A handsome iron 
bridge spans the Ohio here.the longest, with 
one exception, in the U. S. The city has a 
beautiful natural location on an elevated 
plateau, and having an excellent fire de- 
partment, is comparatively free from dan-

ger by fire or flood. The Baltimore & 
Ohio Railroad and the Ohio River Railroad 
afford ample transportation facilities, the 
latter having its main offices and shops at 
this point. Thus, the city enjoys the 
advantages of rail and river. A conserva- 
tive estimate will place the population of 
Parkersburgh at 15, 000, although the census 
reports show but slightly over 8,000. 
Owing to the fact that the corporation 
lines of the city have never been 
extended since its inception, and as most 
of its growth has been outside of these 
lines, it is, perhaps, double that reported 
by the census bureau. The prosperity of 
the building industry and its allied inter- 
ests reflect significantly the city's growth 
and development. The homes of the 
working classes are pretty, cozy and com- 
fortable; the residences of the wealthier 
citizens are spacious and elegant, and the 
business houses are substantial and attrac- 
tive. Real estate has never commanded 
fancy prices, but is steadily increasing in 
value, enabling the working classes to own 
their own homes and thus materially en- 
hancing the welfare and prosperity of the 
city. The banking business is transacted 
by the following thoroughly reliable 
banks: the Citizens' National Bank, the 
Parkerburgh National Bank, the First Na- 
tional Bank and the Second National Bank. 
But few cities of its size have ampler bank- 
ing facilities, and none have sounder banks 
than Parkersburgh. Notwithstanding the 
phenomenal industrial advance, that of the 
educational interest has been equally great. 
The public schools are unsurpassed by those 
of any community in the country. There 
are six commodious public school build- 
ings now in use, in addition to which a 
high school building is in course of erec- 
tion that surpasses in size and architectural 
beauty many institutions of like character 
in the largest cities. Parkersburgh's post- 
office and custom house building is the 
finest in the State, and her academy of 
music would be a credit to any city. The city 
is supplied with gas and water works, light- 
ed by electricity, has telephone exchange, 
excellently paved streets, street car and 
carette systems and all the conveniences of 
a modern metropolis. Neither are religious 
organizations neglected, there being 13 
churches, representing the leading religious 
denominations. Journalistic enterprise has 
not gone unrewarded, as is evinced by the 
spirit and intelligence of its public press 
and the generous support that is accorded 
thereto. The Stale Journal and the Sentinel 



(daily and weekly) are newspapers of which 
any city might well be proud. There is 
also one monthly supported, Smith's Index. 
The most extensive business interests of 
Parkersburgh are those of the lumber in- 
dustry. The poplar, walnut, oak, cherry, 
and other woods with which West Virginia 
abounds, are manufactured into all classes 
of furniture, sawed lumber, etc., and 
shipped to every known land. The other 
manufacturing interests comprise oil re- 
fineries, machine shops, foundries, flour 
mills, tanneries, paper and pulp factories, 
and numerous other industries. Exp.,U. S.

PARSON CITY. 

See Frozen Camp. 



Jackson county. 



PARSONS. This beautiful little city 
is located on the West Virginia Central & 
Pittsburgh R. R., 91 miles from Cumber- 
land and 7 from St. George, the judicial 
seat of Tucker county. It is the distrib- 
uting point for a large section of country 
and is one of the most prosperous towns 
on the road. Lumber and live stock are 
shipped. James L. Poling & Co's Planing 
Mill is the principal industry. Fruit of 
all kinds and grain are produced in abund- 
ance in this section, and owing to the vast 
quantities of timber that abound, thou- 
sands of acres of which remain untouched, 
the most favorable inducements are offer- 
ed to lumber and furniture factories to 



locate here. There are several general 
stores, and three hotels, the Parsons City 
Hotel, the Continental and the Commer- 
cial. Tel., West Va. Central. Telephone 
communications with adjoining towns.

Every Pulley a SPLIT Pulley. 

No shafting to take down: this alone pays for the Pulley. 

Our list is lower than any other. 

They are seventy per cent. LIGHTER, thus saving seventy per cent, of freight. Every Pulley guaran- 
teed to generate thirty to sixty per cent, more power than iron pulleys. 

The fastenings do not mar the shaft. 

Every Pulley PERFECTLY BALANCED. 

No chances to take: every Pulley guaranteed to give satisfaction or to be returned at our expense. All 
are more than strong enough for the very heaviest double belt. No slipping of belts over a Wood 
Pulley. Our Pulleys are furnishd with one set of removable hubs, which are made interchangeable 
and can be fitted to any size shaft by simply changing the hubs.

PIEDMONT. There is perhaps no 
town in the State so well adapted in every 
way to manufacturing purposes as Pied- 
mont. Situated in the northwest of Min- 
eral county, on the main line of the B. & 
O. R. R., at the junction of the C. & P. 
R. R., 5 miles west of Keyser, 220 from 
Baltimore and 174 from Wheeling, it is 
within easy reach of raw materials of every 
description and convenient to the Eastern 
markets as well. Transportation lines 
radiate in every direction, reducing freight 
rates to a minimum. Several manu- 
facturing plants are already preparing to 
locate here, and its inexhaustible natural re- 
sources, coupled with its extremely favor- 
able location, will, ere long, attract others. 
Capitalists, watchful of their own interests 
and ever responsive to the proffered oppor- 
tunities of lucrative investment, will in the 
near future determine that Piedmont shall 
be the commercial heart of this bountiful 
region's aggregated wealth. Iron and 
coal veins of marvelous thickness sandwich 
the hills, and virgin forests stretch away 
for miles in every direction. The repair 
shops for a section of the B. & O. R. R. 
are located here, besides numerous manu- 
facturing enterprises. It has a Presbyter- 
ian and 2 Methodist (North and South) 
churches, and 2 public schools with 450 
pupils. There are 2 banks— the First Na- 
tional and the Davis National — and 2 week- 
ly newspapers, the Herald and the Times.

Direct communication is also had with 
Columbus, O., and the North over the 
Hocking Valley route, the railroad station 
being on the Ohio side — called Point Pleas- 
ant, Ohio — reached by ferry from this 
town. Henderson, W. Va., and Gallipo- 
lis, O., are both reached by ferry service 
from Point Pleasant, run by Stone Bros. ; 
and by January 1, 1892, it is expected to 
have completed a horse car line to Galli- 
polis, to be transferred across the Ohio river 
on the steam ferry. The place was settled 
in 1775, and is now supplied with 7 church- 
es, 2 graded schools, 1 bank, 2 hotels, and 
3 weekly newspapers, the Weekly Register,
